During this season of NBC's The Voice, country music fans can look forward to catching The Band Perry on the show, as they have been summoned by Blake Shelton to advise his team during the "Battle Rounds." The sixth season of the hit reality show is set to premiere on Monday, February 24, 2014 at 8PM EST / 7PM CST on NBC.
"Blake didn't have to ask us twice if we wanted to mentor his team this season on The Voice, " says The Band Perry. "It was so much fun to work with Team Blake, and after 15 years of receiving plenty of 'constructive criticism,' it was our turn to pay it forward. We just hope we were as helpful to Blake's team as our own mentors have been to us through the years."
In addition to appearing on The Voice, the family trio will also be featured on the 40th Anniversary re-mastered edition of Elton John's 1973 seminal breakthrough album, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, with their version of the song "Grey Seal." The reissued CD will hit stores on March 24, 2014 by Universal Music Catalogue / Mercury on CD, vinyl, limited-edition yellow vinyl, and in a box set featuring recording of 'Live At Hammersmith 1973' on CD, a DVD of Bryan Forbes' 1973 film 'Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye To Norma Jean and Other Things', along with a 100-page illustrated hardback book packed with rare photos, memorabilia and new essay containing interviews with Elton John and Bernie Taupin.
"Elton John is a musical hero of ours, and to be included in a project with him is something that is beyond our wildest dreams," says the band.
